2018 Matte For Men New Year Resolutions

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Monday, January 01, 2018

A few weeks ago, I came across a list of resolutions that I made in 1999 for the year 2000 (for those of you that don't remember, that was an especially interesting new year given all of the "Y2K" hysteria). The list included some of the basics like "workout more often", "eat right", and "get more rest", but also included some more specific items like "speak to my Grandmother more often", "dance when I get the chance", and "save at least 10% of every paycheck".

After leaving my job with a world-renowned consumer products company, I started working on making this dream come true. A few years later, on February 2, 2007, Matte For Men was indeed officially launched.   Read More >

Employee Of The Decade

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Monday, January 23, 2017

Matte For Men is quickly approaching its 10 year anniversary and I've been reflecting lately on what has helped get us to this point. Certainly products that are effective and easy to use are key, but there is more to it than that ... it also takes the dedication and willingness to help people and a desire to be the best at what you do.

My perspective on aging ...

Posted by Lee Jacobs on Monday, February 15, 2016

I don't want to get too "deep" but I was recently asked if getting older bothers me. I guess I never gave it  much thought but I thought I would spend a few moments thinking about it and sharing my point of view with you (and I hope you'll do the same).  Read More >
